As the depth of the VA scandal continues to emerge, news station KECI reports Montana vets are experiencing longer wait times to obtain an appointment.
Accredited claims agent Matthew Getz said he has seen a gradual increase in the periods of time veterans have to wait for non-emergency medical appointments.
He said a month or two ago, the normal wait time would be 30 days.
“That’s begun shifting to the 60 day time frame,” said Getz. “In the past week I’ve had a half dozen clients who have shown me their appointment schedule letters for appointments being scheduled up to 90 days out.”
